I feel like you drank 1000 too many beers last night.

I even remember reading Axver's list and thinking it was bizarre that he had listened to Grimes. No idea how that slipped through the cracks. Though it was on Saturday and I definitely had a thousand beers on Saturday.

T-26. Bloc Party - Four (17 points, 4 votes)

24. Sharon Van Etten - Tramp (27 points, 3 votes)
23. Bob Dylan - Tempest (28 points, 3 votes)
22. David Byrne & St. Vincent - Love This Giant (30 points, 3 votes)
21. Cat Power - Sun (34 points, 7 votes)
REVISED:

I like that the vast majority of albums we submitted only received one vote.

It's actually less than last year, which had 86 one-vote albums out of a total of 142.

You should've given it points. Then it would be on the list.

The perk of Peef failing to include my list is that I can see that 9 out of the 15 albums on my list were nominated solely by me.

Ha. The funny thing is that I figured this would be your first comment. I know you pride yourself on that ability to subvert the tastes of this forum.

The six you had in common with others: Alcest, Metric, Grimes, Caspian, John Talabot and Allo Darlin'.

Come to think of it, has anyone seen he and GAF in the same room? Same person, methinks.

GAF not including Taylor Swift was easily the biggest upset of the tournament.
